Illuminati symbolism in Christmas-Saturnalia holiday traditions

First off, Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays to all of you out there. As confusing as this might seem, I’m celebrating Christmas as a Christian, but I will post the Christmas portion of my Occult & Illuminati holiday traditions article. Don’t get it twisted; I think there is plenty of truth behind the Christian message and Christmas, but it also gets tied in with occult and Illuminati beliefs. Nothing to throw a fit about or get excited over, but worth acknowledging so you can know where the real deception comes from (materialism and the Illuminati corporate control).

In fact, one could argue that we’re really witnessing the power of Christ’s message through the overtaking of this Pagan holiday and incorporating it into a Christian one. Of course, one could also argue that we’re witnessing a struggle for power as we see the corporate greed fighting to pull it back towards the occult and materialistic consumerism. Whatever your beliefs, it’s important to understand the origins of this holiday.



December 21st– December 25th: Christmas

Christmas has various links to pagan celebrations such as Yule, Saturnalia, and the winter solstice. The pagan festival referred to as Yule was celebrated around the winter solstice (Dec. 21-23). The sun is at its lowest altitude and will begin its trek in rising higher again. This is directly opposite to the point when the sun is at its highest point at the midsummer (summer solstice). The rising sun was believed to be symbolic of the acceptance of the sacrifices provided on Samhain. The festival known as Yule would eventually be merged with the Christian holiday of Christmas.

Christmas also has roots with the Roman festival known as Saturnalia, which was held in honor of the deity Saturn. This time of feasting and gift-giving is symbolic of the introduction of the concept of time, weights, and measures, which was brought forth with the destruction of the Golden Age. This concept goes deep down the rabbit hole, so you’ll have to check out my book A Grand Unified Conspiracy Theory: The Illuminati, Ancient Aliens, and Pop Culture for more on that concept of Saturn Worship.

The Saturnalia festival featured human sacrifices and ran from December 17th-23rd. There would be gladiator battles and the deaths would be considered more sacrifices to the deity Saturn. There were also concepts of role reversal; with masters feeding their slaves (still practiced today at work Christmas parties when the bosses feed the workers).

The Romans also participated in a festival called Dies Natalis Solis Invicti, or “Birthday of the Unconquered Sun” on December 25th. Sol Invictus was a Roman god of the sun, which could be yet another retelling of Nimrod and Semiramis. The depictions of Sol Invictus appear to mirror that of the Statue of Liberty, who was designed after the Roman goddess Libertas:

Written verses would accompany gifts given at Saturnalia, which would eventually transform to present day greeting cards. Feasts were conducted in order to honor the upcoming time known as the famine months from January to April in which food was a hard commodity to come by, leading way to the Christmas dinner feast. Cookies shaped as humans were eaten during Saturnalia (gingerbread men), as was the tradition of singing in the streets as part of the festivities (caroling).

The date of December 25th came about in the Roman tradition because Julius Caesar had the calendar ‘re-synched’ with the sun, with the winter solstice occurring on December 25th. Around the 4th century that Saturnalia was integrated with Christmas in an attempt to convert pagans to Christianity.

Here are some more of the common themes and symbolism found at Christmas-time, and their occult origins:



The Bible’s Book of Jeremiah says not to learn the ways of the heathen (e.g. Pagans and occultists) and then goes into the decoration of a tree that Pagans used to do. Here’s an excerpt from Jeremiah 10:2-4:

Thus saith the LORD, Learn not the way of the heathen, and be not dismayed at the signs of heaven; for the heathen are dismayed at them. For the customs of the people are vain: for one cutteth a tree out of the forest, the work of the hands of the workman, with the axe. They deck it with silver and with gold; they fasten it with nails and with hammers that it move not.

Supposedly the people referred to in Jeremiah also used to put candies and cakes on it (e.g. candy canes) for the winter pagan stag god; Nimrod. I’ve read that the context of this passage is one in which the people used to literally worship the tree as an idol after they adorned with the silver and gold. The lights on the tree symbolize candles that were used because it was a beacon to the winter god Nimrod for him to see your home and fly down and bless your household.

The meaning of the tree has been diluted down over the years, and the symbolism is arguably no longer there, but none the less, that’s the origin.


The famous Rockefeller Tree is around the sunken plaza which has the statue of Prometheus. This statue honors the story of Prometheus who stole fire of illumination from gods and gave it to mankind, enlightening them with wisdom. This is important to the occult beliefs and Luciferians, as it points out the ability to transform from man to god without the assistance of a spiritual god.


David Rockefeller himself said:

“Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure – one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”

Yule Log

As mentioned earlier, anything with “Yule” in it refers to the Pagan holiday on Dec. 21st (a human sacrifice night). The Yule log was to be made from birch and a piece of it should’ve kept burning all year around until the next Christmas, symbolizing the cycle of reincarnation (again, Semiramis and Nimrod).



The tradition of mistletoe is interesting in that the berries on it are poisonous and can give you diarrhea and acute gastrointestinal problems. The mistletoe was a fertility plant for the Druids (hence reason for kissing beneath it), and held as a symbol for romance and vitality because of this.



The wreath is yet another fertility symbol; circular to represent women’s organs (the “circle of life”). The candle in the center is the phallic representation of the man. This same symbol is used at the Vatican in St. Peter’s Square. At the center is a 4,000 year old Egyptian obelisk with a circle around it (representing the male phallus and female fertility). The obelisk was moved from Egypt, to the Circus of Nero in Rome, where it witnessed countless Christian martyrdoms and executions. The lines emanating from the present location at the Vatican (its third move) make it a sundial. If the obelisk’s shadow lies within one of the eight sets of lines, it will indicate a sacrifice night.

Holly & Santa Claus

Holly was used by the Druids to hang in windows to keep evil spirits away. Holly was considered the sacred plant of Saturn during the height of the Roman Saturnalia festival. They would decorate images of the god Saturn, and Christians would eventually decorate their homes as a way of avoiding persecution from the Romans. It is also considered as a sacred fertility symbol. The holly is associated with male fertility while its counterpart ivy represents the female aspect.

There was also a pagan mythological being called the Holly King who was eventually transformed into Santa Claus. He had an adversary named the Oak King and the two would battle with the Holly King at peak strength during the winter solstice (Christmas time). This is very similar to the tale of the phases of Semiramis in which she trades with Nimrod for power during the cycles of the year, as it waxes and wanes.

Like the Holly King, Santa Claus is ‘all knowing’ through knowledge of who’s been good and bad, with powers of omnipresence and ability to traverse the planet in one night. He has eight reindeer with horns on their heads (aka ‘stags’, drawing similarity to the stag god Nimrod again).

Elves were originally demonic and ugly creatures that could perform magic for good or bad. They were also referred to as hell-devils, or orcs at one time. Pentagrams were drawn in order to keep evil elves away from the Scandinavian people. During the late 1500’s elves became synonymous with fairies, eventually to become what we know of today.

Strangely enough, there is a phenomenon known as the “Elf on the Shelf” where parents help this elf hide throughout the house and “watch” the children and decide if they’ve been naughty or nice. Authors Pinto and Nemorin wrote a research paper about this potential predictive programming in Who’s the Boss:

When children enter the play world of The Elf on the Shelf, they accept a series of practices and rules associated with the larger story. This, of course, is not unique to The Elf on the Shelf. Many children’s games, including board games and video games, require children to participate while following a prescribed set of rules. The difference, however, is that in other games, the child role-plays a character, or the child imagines herself within a play-world of the game, but the role play does not enter the child’s real world as part of the game. As well, in most games, the time of play is delineated (while the game goes on), and the play to which the rules apply typically does not overlap with the child’s real world.

elf-on-the-shelf- police state watching

Elf on the Shelf presents a unique (and prescriptive) form of play that blurs the distinction between play time and real life. Children who participate in play with The Elf on the Shelf doll have to contend with rules at all times during the day: they may not touch the doll, and they must accept that the doll watches them at all times with the purpose of reporting to Santa Claus. This is different from more conventional play with dolls, where children create play-worlds born of their imagination, moving dolls and determining interactions with other people and other dolls. Rather, the hands-off “play” demanded by the elf is limited to finding (but not touching!) The Elf on the Shelf every morning, and acquiescing to surveillance during waking hours under the elf’s watchful eye. The Elf on the Shelf controls all parameters of play, who can do and touch what, and ultimately attempts to dictate the child’s behavior outside of time used for play.

The article goes further; explaining that this concept has been in use before; in prisons:

The gaze of the elf on the child’s real world (as opposed to play world) resonates with the purpose of the panopticon, based on Jeremy Bentham’s 18th century design for a model prison (a central tower in a circular structure, surrounded by cells). Backlighting in the central tower made it impossible for prisoners to discern whether or not they were being watched. Michel Foucault (1979) saw the panopticon as a perfect symbol of modern surveillance societies: a metaphor for discipline operating through a variety of social and institutional apparatuses that leave the individual on guard, never certain if she is actually being watched, but knowing structures are in place to monitor her movements at all times.
And if that’s not enough; consider that the ‘Elf on the Shelf’ uses magic; a concept I highlight in my hip hop conspiracy book SACRIFICE: MAGIC BEHIND THE MIC:


There are several good sources that this information was pulled from (and even more could be extracted if desired). This includes: Wikipedia, research by Freeman Fly, Doc Marquis’ America’s Occult Holidays video (see bottom of post), David Icke’s forums, and Bibliotech. For the other Christians out there, we know that the word of God tells us we are being deceived by Satan, and these occult manipulations of the holidays are a key example. What should be days of holiness (holy-days), have been perverted with images and themes of occult worship. The Bible tells us to live in the world, but no be part of it, which could have bearing on these occult holiday traditions we’re innocently taking part of.

  1. The lyrics of “Santa Claus is Coming to Town” have a whole new meaning to me after reading up on all this stuff. They make Santa sound like Big Brother:

    He sees you when you’re sleeping
    He knows when you’re awake
    He knows if you’ve been bad or good
    You better be good for goodness sake
    You better be good for goodness sake

  2. Did we have any ritual sacrifices that were broadcast during saturnalia so everyone could see?On Saturns day the 20th of December witch was a Saturday 2 of NYC finest were assassinated by being shot in the head.Notice the police are associated with the colors red and blue when they turn on their squad car lights.The 2 colors represent fire and water witch is how a lot of folks are ritually sacrificed.Check out a UFC fight the next time you get a chance and you will find that they fight out of the red and blue corners also you can see they use a lot of red and blue lighting and they have their main events on a full moon and what comes out during the full moon are lunatics of course.The upcoming ppv main events are January 3rd and 31st witch are full moons if you check your calendar even the one after that is on a full moon in Febuary.Unfortunately the police were sacrificed on the night of the black moon again you can just look at your calendar and see for yourself.The Titanic was a water sacrifice witch happened on a black moon during the witching hour of midnight.Waco was a ritual sacrifice in witch fire was used to make a burnt offering.Both incidents were broad cast to as many people possible then you are asked to cast your vote to give them the power they and their overlords desire.Pure black magik disguised right in front of our faces.

    • There was also that autistic boy, Jayden Robinson, who drowned on Christmas Eve…YouTuber Black Child did a video about it. The boy’s father made a big deal about the water aspect.

  3. Just as a grain of salt makes water saltwater and impure so is Christmas. It would be one thing to celebrate December 25 in a Christ like manner however Christians have been celebrating the day just like the pagans and this is not acceptable. Just because the meanings aren’t passed down with the symbols doesn’t mean they don’t still apply…they do and always will. Jesus says in scripture for us not to worship Him as the pagans worship their gods. Perhaps we need to make birthdays count and delve a little deeper into the spiritual/biblical celebrations. Christmas, Easter, Halloween and Valentine’s Day all have sinister origins. Hats off to the writer of this article but dig just a little deeper into the story of Nimrod and Old Nick to get a clearer picture of what we are saying is acceptable with Christmas. For Easter and Valentine’s Day refer to the story of Ishtar and the abominable conception. Salvation is free and you have nothing to fear if Jesus is your Lord and Savior.

  4. What a lot of people fail to notice is that the obelisk is not inscribed, their has been a Cross mounted at the top, and at the base there is the Latin inscription:

    Sixtvs V Pont Max
    Obeliscvm Vaticanvm
    Dis Gentivm
    Impio Cvltv Dicatvm
    Ad Apostolorum Limina
    Operoso Laboretranstvlit
    Anno MDLXXXVI Pont II

    Ecce crvx Domine
    Fvgite Partres adversae
    Vicit leo Detribv ivda

    Christvs Vincit
    Christvs Regnat
    Christvs imperat
    Christtvs ab omnimalo
    Plebem svam

    Which roughly translates:

    Pope Sixtus V (Supreme Pontiff)
    Obelisk of Vatican
    richly adorned by the Gentiles
    To the threshold of the Apostles
    The labor of thing laboriously carried away
    1586, 2nd year of his pontificate.

    Behold the Cross of the Lord!
    go into exile ye hostile powers!
    The Lion of the tribe of Judah hath prevailed!

    Christ conquers,
    Christ is King,
    Christ is Emperor!
    May Christ protect His
    people from all evil!”

    It shows that Christ conquers all!

    Maius pax Christi semper esse tecum

    • Doesn’t matter what they wrote on the pagan penus symbol. They choose to follow pagan Roman traditions rather than honour Jesus properly. The scriptures make it clear there would be a Great Apostacy that would prevail until the last days where true worship would be restored. That is now where there is only one group of people on this earth exposing publicly these horrible traditions that have been infiltrated into so called Christianity and glorifying god’s name…

    • Jesus mean Hail Zeus (Say Jesus in Spanish and you will see it is hiding in plain sight). Christ is a reference to Horus and his crest (KRST – like Crest toothpaste or the company CRST)). Zeus and Horus are the same person, Tammuz who is mentioned in Ezekiel. He was the Son of Nimrod and Semiramis. Semiramis was Nimrod’s mother. Laying down with your father’s wife is mentioned in Scripture several times. So Nimrod is the father and Tammuz (Zeus, Horus, etc.) is the son. and Semiramis is the holy ghost (not Scriptural). The cross or lower case t is the symbol for Tammuz. Guess who Tammuz lover was – yes Ishtar (Easter).
      Easter: Christmas: watch all three parts. King James Version has much false in it. Lord, God, etc. are pagan/man names.

      You should not recognize Christmas as it is a man made up false festival and Scripture does not tell us to do any of the things we are told. Holy is a reference to Holly Say Hollydays or Holydays. Neil Diamond sung a song Holly Holy. Glory is a reference to Gloria (look at the lyrics for GLORIA )

  1. Robin Williams death conspiracy theories - IlluminatiWatcher - […] PLUS, the festival in mention is described exactly as the Roman festival of Saturnalia that I describe in Illuminati…
